Annual Hughes Family Halloween Dinner

For the last several years, it's been our tradition, to celebrate All Hallow's Eve with a yummy dinner.  Our menus have ranged from the "gross" foods like witches fingers, swamp water, and bat wings to normal food like beef stew or Zuppa Toscana.  This year we celebrated with Zuppa Toscana, Harvest Salad, Rattlesnake Bites, French Bread, Shirley Temples, Roy Rogers and Swamp Water.  We had so much fun we started the festivities with donuts on a string.  The grandkids enjoyed the donuts along with some of the adults!

 Grandsons D and J giving it a try.

Granddaughter C giving it a taste.

Each table setting represents a different character such as Dracula, Frankenstein, Witch etc.  Every few years we have come up with other characters as our family has grown.
